Let's ignore the Superbowl and pretend it doesn't exist.
“If this were a boxing match, you’re gonna have to completely knock me out and carry me out of the ring because I’m not throwing in the towel. Absolutely not going to leave the ring and I’m going the distance.He knows about the subjunctive (the Southern subjunctive takes are gonna), but not who throws the towel.
I just can't quit you, Huckabee.
Is you is or is you ain't my candidate?
If he wasn't a McCain prostitute out to split the religious vote from the conservatives...and ensuring McCain's nomination...I'd consider him charming, too.As is, if he ends up on a McCain ticket, that is another reason for voting Hillary or Obama in and ensuring McCain/Huck go down as hard as as possible.
What we have here is...a failure to communicate!
I wish I read that, Campy, before I spent all that time trying to find this.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIOmzsiecuA&NR=1
Searching with "will I will or will I won't" worked NOT AT ALL.LOL.
He's an educated man, and he knows his grammar. He's code-switching; I do it, too, as a Southerner. Maybe he wants to be underestimated, or appear charming, to do the "aw shucks" routine. I don't know.
I would that Huck would quit.What does he mean by "can't"? Contractual agreement with McCain?
He's probably just drunk.
The self-delusion of politicians would be charming if it wasn't so damn annoying.
Watching CSPAN last night, a Huckabee rally, with many of the participants waving signs saying "Us Against Them." Is that really what Huckabee's all about? Who's "Them?" I was shocked. It's the kind of political sign I would've expected in a Sean Penn movie attacking the Christian right, not actual Christians in an actual presidential rally. I have a feeling "them" includes Mormons and country club Republicans. So much for the theory that inside every Huckabee voter is a Romney voter crying to get out.
So much for the theory that inside every Huckabee voter is a Romney voter crying to get out.Nah. Why vote for a conservative religious heretic doomed to burn in hell when Jayzus offers up good ol' Pastor Huckleberry??How about the theory that for every religiously bigoted theocrat voting for Huckabee the Republicans lose 3.5 voters in the independent, female moderate, old "Reagan Democrat" ranks otherwise approving of Republicans but scared off by the Fundies?
That is not Southern!
Yeah, a lot of weird elocutions are acceptable, even treasured, in the South. But that sounds pretty tin even to my ears.
They say "might could," too. I've kind of involuntarily picked it up.
He might could have said might could another time, but that would be a whole nuther story.This isn't "Southern." I appreciate your desire not to insult southerners regarding our speech patterns, but ... I kinda sorta think you managed to back asswards into 'zactly that, Prof. A.Most of us are good-humored about it, though. (Like y'all Yankees don't have any funny things in the way you tawk!)
